Product details

Seller's Notes: We’ve lived with this lovely antique secretary/bookcase for over 35 years at our stone house in the Hudson Valley. We purchased it from an antique dealer in New Paltz in 1984 who told us it was made in Great Britain and was from the “Georgian” period. We can’t be sure of the accuracy of his description but we believe it’s at least a 100 years old based on comparable pieces we’ve viewed. We are sad to part with it but it’s not practical in our comfortable but smaller Brooklyn apartment. What appears to be the top drawer beneath the center windowed bookcase folds down to the secretary portion of the piece. The windowed bookcase sections have locks and we have the key! There are scratches on the upper section of the bookcase where our cats over the years hit the wood with their back legs as they jumped to the very top of bookcase to survey their domain. There are also scratches and a scrape or two on the foldout desk portion. I don’t believe these imperfections are very noticeable or offensive. I think they show the lovely piece lived with humans for a century. They have not been recently manufactured by Raymour and Flanigan or delivered by Overstock. It maybe be a cliche but “they are not making furniture like this anymore.” It is elegant, beautifully crafted of fine mahogany and will last another 100 years. Its a treasure.
